Detroit Institute of Arts Storage Upgrade and Rehousing Proposal

Renovation of four art storage rooms at the Detroit Institute of Arts, to house works of Asian, Native American, Pre-Columbian, and Oceanic art, and American, Canadian, African American, and modern and contemporary furniture.

The Detroit Institute of Arts requests NEH support to renovate four art storage rooms at the museum. The renovated rooms will house works from the DIA's outstanding collections of Asian art, Native American, Pre-Columbian, and Oceanic art, and American, Canadian, African-American, and modern and contemporary furniture. These works are presently stored in twenty-nine separate storage rooms throughout the museum. The project involves implementing environmental improvements and lighting upgrades, and installing necessary storage equipment, including powder-coated cabinets, racking and platforms with inert decking, and wall screens. Works of art will be moved into their assigned renovated, acclimatized and newly-designed storage rooms, unpacked, reorganized and properly rehoused to ensure their long term conservation and preservation. This will facilitate display, loans, scholarly study and research, and make the collections more accessible to the public.
